Rasmussen: Gov’t workers a lot more optimistic on economy than private sector. “While a near majority of private-sector employees see the economy as deteriorating, the opposite is true of public-sector employees. Forty-six percent of government workers think the economy is improving.”
What if Richard Nixon had gotten his hands on this in 1960? TMZ has released a previously unpublished photo that appears to show John F. Kennedy tanning on a boat as two naked women jump off into the ocean, and two more tan in the nude on the upper deck. The photo, believed to be taken during a Mediterranean boat trip that then-senator JFK took with brother Ted Kennedy and Senator George Smathers in 1956, has been authenticated by multiple experts. At the time of the trip, Jackie Kennedy was pregnant, and had an emergency C-section that resulted in a stillborn child while JFK was on the boat. The picture could have, as TMZ put it, "torpedoed" Kennedy's presidential run if it had surfaced during the 1960 presidential election.
